Michael Levy

Michael has been living & working as a photographer on Salt Spring Island for the past 15 years.

He works only with what light Nature provides with traditional analog films & cameras resisting the lure of the digital age. The work that he enjoys most is with his vintage Hasselblad medium format gear: no batteries, motor drives or auto focus just a box that captures light focused through a lens onto the film plane with a slight interruption from a mechanical shutter.

The square format of the Hasselblad not only provides a beautiful, crisp image due to the large size of the film but also creates a different kind of composition because of the 2 1/4" square format. There is no landscape or portrait composing, just image which simplifies the equation substantially giving the subject of the photograph the prominence and attention it deserves.
